With the advent of the 2020 Android flagships coming, Qualcomm have been hyping up their fresh Sd 865 SoC. They’ve been touting the chip’s experience, claiming it’ll be the best chip on the market, but now we’ve obtained real benches to appear at. Someone ran Qualcomm’s Sd 865 reference product (codenamed ‘Kona’) through AnTuTu, and the achievements are just like high quality like coming.
In AnTuTu, the chipset manages to score of 568,919 points, which puts it higher than every commercial phone currently out there on the market. It’s a marked enhancement above the Snapdragon 855 which averaged around 450,000 points, and even manages to nudge the iPhone 11 Pro Max and its Apple A13 Bionic CPU aside.
In comparison with the Snapdragon 855+, Kirin 990 5G and MediaTek Dimensity 1000, the Sd 865 still retains its clean lead, leaving it as the king of the pack. Granted, this is a reference gadget, it’s quite possible that final gadgets from manufacturers will score higher or lower than this, but it sets a quite nice usual for another CPU makers to aim for.
The Sd 865 was announced at their recent summit in Maui, Hawaii and will be probably be seen in all primary flagship Android smartphones in 2020. With the Snapdragon 865, Qualcomm is promising up to a 25 percent increase in CPU and GPU functionality, twice the performance increase in AI tasks and lower power consumption across the board. We can’t wait to take our hands on a Sd 865 fueled product and test it ourselves.
